Description:

KSystemLog is a system log viewer tool for KDE 4

This program is compatible with KDE 4 beta 3 libraries.

This program is developed for being used by beginner users, which don't know how to find information about their Linux system, and how the log files are in their computer. But it is also designed for advanced users, who want to quickly see problems occuring on their server.

KSystemLog has the following features :

* View all the main log of your system, by selecting them directly in a menu
* Tabbed view to allow displaying several logs at the same time
* Auto display new logged lines.
* Fast parsing and reading (more than 10000 lines each 5 seconds)
* Colorize log lines depending on their levels
* Detailed information for each log Lines (in a dedicated dialog)
* Quick filter
* Send a log message manually from a dialog box.
* Save, print and email log files are possible.
* It can parse the following log files of your system :
o System logs
o X.org logs
o Kernel logs
o Authentication logs
o Acpid logs
o Cups logs
o Postfix logs
o Apache logs
o Samba logs
o Daemons logs
o Cron logs
o XSession logs
o Cron logs

You can simply compile KSystemLog using the KDE 4 beta packages available in KUbuntu or other distributions.




Changelog:

Major improvements :

- Compatibility with KDE 4 beta4
- Fix icon position in search bar
- Add test coverage for Kernel logs
- Support for Suse Kernel logs
- Add joker to file list in configuration
- Auto-recognizition of the opened files

 Memleak

Hi! This is a nice app, but...
When I launch it (as root, to be able to read /var/log/messages), it eats ALL my memory. First RAM, then swap, and then my computer becomes unresponsive at all (when kernel tries to find something to kill I think). It also uses 100% CPU. I don't know what's causing it, but it's not good at all. If you need further info (KDE version or kernel version or something) just ask.


It is not the size of the hammer that counts. It's how you wield it.

ouch !!

Can you send me your system log files ?

If you can't send me, please just send a part of them, or something which always makes KSystemLog consuming too much memory.


This problem can have 2 reasons :
- Strange characters in this file (aargh, I have to manage this $*-(%? characters!)
- A bug in KSystemLog (it will be not so strange ;-)

Sorry for this problem ;-(

since when should a user be allowed to view the systemlog?

strange..

if you really need a GUI to view your logs, check webmin.

When he tries to install its graphic card and it does not work, or when he wants to know why its file share server (Samba) does not work, and report this to its support/friends. There are hundred and hundred reasons for a user to see system log (check the Windows one to be sure it's not a strange needing)

Hi,

somehow I cannot agree that user should see the system log. This opens a big security hole as system log CAN contain some sensitive information. Even passwords if root forgets to reset log level of a program after debugging.

Further, to install a graphics card of any other piece of hardware the root privileges are required.

Please, don't take Windows as a good security example as it is NOT secure.

User should and normally is able to read only logs like ~/.xsession-errors.

I would appreciate if .desktop file created during installation already contained "Run as root" so kdesu would always start.

Yes, but you are talking about a multi-user Linux system with a specifical Administrator.

Today, Linux is also on simple machine, with 1 main user (which is also the root), and satellite user, like your wife, or your children.

Of course, KSystemLog is useful for this two cases : the administrator in the 1/ and the poweruser in the 2/

The fact that KSystemLog exists will not automagically change the rights of your log files, so KSystemLog is not the problem here. KSystemLog is only a way to display finely log files of your system, only if you have the rights to read them.

I have plan with neoclust to add the kdesu feature (1 line modified in .desktop file), but as you said, log files in user home are also interested, and maybe will be parsed by KSystemLog a day, so I'm not sure to always keep this kdesu, and it's not a problem.

This opens no new "security hole" in any way. Either the the user is allowed to view the logs, because the permissions on the logfiles say so, or he isn't.

On a server the normal users should not be able to view the logs, and thus root needs to tie down the permissions. No app is going to change that point.

On a desktop the normal user usually also is root. So no problem here, if that normal user is able to check the logfiles.

My point being: The file permissions define, who is able to see the logs and who isn't, not some app. If ksystemlog can read the logs as a normal user, so can "less" in a shell.

The user is allowed to view, whatever the FS permissions allow him (or her) to view.

This app doesn't change that in any way. If root is to uncaring to check the permissions on the logs: tough luck.

And being on the "tough" side of being able to view syslogs: Installing webmin and thereby opening another port to the net does *not* qualify as security sensitive?

Geez...

 Doesn't compile

I'm on a Gentoo box, and ksystemlog 0.3.1 doesn't compile. There is an error while running the configure:

checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.2) (library qt-mt) not found. Please check your installation!
For more details about this problem, look at the end of config.log.
Make sure that you have compiled Qt with thread support!

!!! ERROR: kde-misc/ksystemlog-0.3.1 failed.
!!! Function kde_src_compile, Line 154, Exitcode 1
!!! died running ./configure, kde_src_compile:configure
!!! If you need support, post the topmost build error, NOT this status message.

Note that I have qt 3.3.4-r3 installed.

Ehm... Do you have installed the Qt-devel packages ? I think your compilation problem is due to the fact that Qt tools are missing in your computer, and these tools are generally included in qt-devel (or the matching devel package in Gentoo distrib). Just install them sould fix this problem.

I don't think that the problem could be this, because I've compiled all KDE and several other qt-based software without problems.

AFAIK there is not a "qt-devel" package in Gentoo, because the qt one contains all the necessary to compile qt-based applications.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
